I've been baking fish like this for years. Even with a little butter, it's relatively low fat, especially if you use non fat mayo. The mayo mixture is also quite nice as a dipping sauce for artichokes. Also, any white fish can be substituted. And if you have some herbs on hand, add them either to the dipping sauce or the mayo mixture.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 375^F Spray 9x13 inch baking pan with cooking spray.
  2. Place orange roughy in pan.
  3. Combine mayonnaise, lemon juice to taste, and dijon mustard.
  4. Spread evenly over orange roughy.
  5. Combine bread crumbs, shallot, garlic and 1-2 tablespoons melted butter in a ziplock bag.
  6. Add enough butter to coat ingredients a little.
  7. Shake to mix.
  8. Sprinkle bread crumbs over orange roughy.
  9. Bake uncovered until fish is done and crumbs are light brown and a little crispy, 20 to 25 minutes, depending on the thickness of the fish.
  10. Usually it takes about 10 minutes per inch of thickness, including the topping.

Wonderful! I cooked it for 25 minutes as "duo_mom" suggested. However, I used finely chopped onions (didn't have any shallots), used 1/3 cup bottled lemon juice (didn't have a fresh lemon) and it turned out terrific! This recipe is going to be a standard for my house! Thanks!

I liked it, however, I would definitely recommend cooking it the full 25 minutes if not a little more, so you don't experience undercooked fish. Which is a huge turn off for people who don't really care for fish, but want to go outside of their comfort zone. Overall, okay.

I'm going 4 stars as that was the concensus at the dinner table. I thought 5 appropriate, my husband and son thought 3. I am the fish lover. This just might have been too mild for them.
